Ejector I would assume? Haven’t ridden enough wooden coasters to know if many of them have floater hills, but from the speed most of them pull it would have to be ejector right? 

Most woodies have floater airtime like those made by GCI, however this is made by gravity group and they do make more intense woodies with ejector air so yea this is most likely ejector. (but that means it most likely will need much more maintenance on the tracks over time)

I thought I'd start a seperate forum for Leviathan specific construction updates, so that we can easily follow the coaster in one place. This was my first time seeing the vertical construction pr

Forgot to upload these after visiting Sunday.

I've had a look around, and it doesn't seem like any particularly deep footings are needed - most of the installs seem to 'bolt on' to the ride slab, with their own support leg \ outriggers. No doubt the slab would need to be thicker \ reinforced etc, but even the 'worlds tallest' in orlando doesn't seem to have any significant excavation or drilling.

The slab itself would need about 4 weeks curing time to reach max strength, but usually they can start loading them 11-14 days after the pour.

If it is an outrigger \ bolt on situation, it should be very quick.

*Pure speculation based on my own googling. I've no particular knowledge of this install or others, other than what i found online in a few minutes - clearly, this could be very wrong, and i'm quite happy to be corrected if someone has better information.

Do we know who's manufacturing this ride? Not that it matters seeing as Funtime are one-upping them with an 80 metre on the way! (Which is soo exciting! They're stunning machines and great fun to ride!)

Probably some manufacturer from the Czech Republic most likely... pity it's not a Funtime one, but keen to see the travelling one when it arrives

Will this 80m funtime skyflyer to be a travelling version that does all the major east coast royal shows?

From what it seems, is that it will be used as an attraction at specific locations for extended periods, Funtime are touring the ride and will be taking care of operations. There has been talk about a showmen being possibly involved but at the moment that’s just speculation. I think if there is a showmen involved in some way, it will most likely be put forward for the Capital Shows. At least Royal Easter for sure.

SBF Visa by the look of the renderings.

 

@HussRainbow87 the prospect of a genuine 80m star flyer sounds good.

Do you think we will continue to see more of these smaller pop up "State Fair" type carnivals happening this year too? Obviously they were borne out of Covid causing the capital city shows to be cancelled.

But to be honest, I think we should have more of these free admission carnivals happening everywhere (As you see in Germany and the Netherlands). Seems a waste to have large rides that only get used like 4-5 times per year at the main captial city shows.

      Operating Hours at Wet'n'Wild Gold Coast

      Monday - Wednesday the park will be closed.
      Thursday operating as it has normally during off-peak (10-3)
      Friday-Sunday normal operating hours.
      I will be surprised if they keep Wet n Wild open through Winter this year. It struggles through winter on a normal year, and during those years there's always plenty of debate on why it's open, I'm sure there's plenty more support for that debate this year. All I'll say on that debate is that you're extremely lucky if you get close to 1000 people (a day) through the gates, there are many days where 10% of that is hard to reach.
      Good weather days during the holidays are exceptions to the 1000 people rule, but they don't justify months of operation.

      Opening Hours - Plan your day at Sea World Gold Coast

      Warner Bros. Movie World Gold Coast operating hours

      I'm expecting that both Sea World and Movie World will reduce weekday operating hours through winter as well. Especially noting the conservative date ranges currently shown. (and once this happens, Dreamworld will obviously follow suit; if they don't announce it first)
      ---
      Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if COVID sees our parks completely adapt their operating schedules. Weekend operation of our main parks, Seasonal operation of the water parks. There are plenty of logistical issues with that, especially with contracted and salaried workforces. So it's not super likely to happen, but I can't say I don't see them moving closer to it.
      I know most of you are going to jump to "That doesn't make any sense, plenty of people still go to the parks during this time." As enthusiasts we have to understand that what we THINK makes sense, and what actually makes sense, are in many cases very different.
      Reducing hours means that you're increasing density of guests on the hours/days you're actually open, which means you're far better justifying the minimum number of staff you're required to have there anyway. Doesn't mean it'll feel any busier, especially without international tourists being here, and it goes without saying that a large majority of locals spend far less than interstate and international tourists, which is the part everyone seems to forget when talking about operating hours.
      this is all talking about off-peak, I'm not suggesting they'll change anything during the peak September-January season.

      I just thought of marking a place for us to share stories from Theme parks whether they’re insane, scary or happy share them here. Here’s one from theme parks me I remember going into hot wheels sidewinder just to look at the queue because I was too scared to go on it


      Don’t know what’s going on with the photos so just try your best to ignore it thanks

      My reason for this is that all signage for Spongebob 3D has been removed and a while back when they announced Vikings revenge would retire they said it would be removed to make way for a new attraction coming in 2019 but as you all would know that never happened and the ride has sat SBNO for 4 years or so
